The Wanoja coffee farmers group founded by Hj. Eti Sumiati are located in West Java, Bandung, Kamojang. Wanoja itself means ’woman’ in Sundanese, as it was initially established with only female coffee farmers in the group. Wanoja grew rapidly with a total of 55 members, both male and female and the mills are now owned by Eti’s son, Satrea.
The extended natural process begins with selecting only ripe red coffee cherries, which have good sugar content and fruit thickness. Coffee cherries are fermented for an extended 14 days and then dried in the sun for 21 to 28 days until the moisture content reaches below 12% and then rested for two months. After the resting process is complete, the coffee is hulled, then sorted by size and density, both using machine and hand-sorting.
This extensive 14 days fermentation leads to fruit-forward flavors that start with mango, followed by strawberry candy and raisin aftertaste.
